Melissa Gorga Book signing

Melissa Gorga's first book "Love, Italian Style: The Secrets of My Hot and Happy Marriage" released this week and she's been out promoting it. 

Last night Melissa attended a book signing at Mendham Books in New Jersey and this morning she stopped by for a chat with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford on 'Today'.  

I perused Amazon to see the initial reactions to Melissa's book and so far it hasn't been positive.  In Melissa's defense, many of the 1-star reviews left for her were by people who admittedly didn't read the book or only read the free excerpt from chapter 1, and some flat out said they just didn't like her on the show. 

But on the other side of that coin, of the few 5-star reviews written, those users didn't have any history of leaving product reviews except for this glowing summary of how Melissa's book changed their life.  So, that's a little suspect.  But again, the same is true for some of those negative reviewers.  The whole thing reads a little like a blog comment section – filled with both Melissa lovers and Melissa haters and the reviews are nearly all 1's and 5's, with no in-between.

Hey, all you skeptics of true and everlasting devotion–I'm about to burst your bubbles and melt your cold, closed hearts.  Romance is alive and well, and it's residing in Atlanta.  It's with heart full of love (and yes, I was humming the song from Les Miserables as I typed that line) that I share this exciting news.

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta's golden couple Stevie J. and Joseline Hernandez are confirming that they are officially married.  See, guys?  Two crazy kids can make it work!  According to Hip Hollywood, the duo partied at an L.A. club recently, and Stevie took to the stage to share the exciting news. Move over Kate and William!  I smell a spin-off

You know what people do when they are #talented and #inlove?  They make music.  That said, please enjoy two of Joseline's videos after the jump.  You're welcome.  No, seriously.  You may kind of owe me after this…

tami roman

You can certainly tell a lot about a lady by the company she keeps, and if you're striving to be besties with the women of Basketball Wives, that may not fare very well for your character…at least in my opinion.  It seems that Tami Roman has found out the hard way.  I'd like to feel sorry for her, but we all know that's never going to happen!

As much as she promises that she's changed for the better, Tami recently got fighting mad (literally) at pal Evelyn Lozada for giving her the hand.  Tami has also gotten upset with co-star, current frienemy, and BBW creator, accusing Shaunie O'Neal as trying to define her by her violent, bullish past.  You know, up to this point, I'd thought that Tami was making a mountain out of a mole hill regarding Shaunie's "it could go really good or really bad" comment (Seriously, I can't believe that we're still talking about that one sentence).  Now, however, I don't put it past Shaunie to quietly instigate.  She is, after all, the cast's puppet master!

"Kar-dashing through L.A., a pimp momager in tow, a baby with Kanye, a sex tape doesn't make her a —OOOOHHH Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!  It's Christmas time with the famewhoring klan of K-W-U-T-K!" Altogether now! Wait, you're not ready to go caroling in September?  Don't let Kris Jenner hear you!

In case you are the most naive and gullible person on the planet and/or have been residing under a rock for the last five years, you realize that reality shows are anything but real…and that goes triple if your last name rhymes with Kartrashian or Money-Spenner.  Don't believe me?

Another season of Big Brother comes to an end tonight, and for the first time ever, I'm happy about it. Big Brother 15 needs to be put to bed. And the vile houseguests need to come out of hiding and face the wrath of America.
 
Tonight Andy Herren, GinaMarie Zimmerman, and Spencer Clawson will endure the three-part final HOH competition. Then, the winner determines the final two, who will face the (hopefully very bitter) jury.

NeNe Leakes' spinoff I Dream Of NeNe is off to a great start!  The wedding remix featuring NeNe and her former ex-husband turned current-husband Gregg Leakes pulled in more than 1.5 million viewers last night! 

I know a lot of you thought that NeNe's spinoff premiere was boring, but I enjoyed it, in all of its mellow glory!  Maybe I'm just burned out on rehashed drama this week, but I felt it was a nice change of pace.  I may be in the minority, but NeNe cracks me up and I'm not ashamed to admit it (and I love her blonde hair, dammit, no matter what y'all say!).  And who knew Gregg had so many neurotic little issues? 

Also doing well with its debut last night was The New Atlanta, scoring just a hair over 1 million viewers.  I tuned in for this one and liked the first half, but was turned off that they leapt right into dinner drama (a favorite formula for Bravo) way too soon!  Let us get to know the cast before we're weave pullin' and table flippin', okay? 

TELL US – WILL YOU TUNE IN FOR I DREAM OF NENE AND THE NEW ATLANTA NEXT WEEK?
